Kim Basinger has admitted that she worries about the future of young people because they appear to have become so self-absorbed, vain and unmotivated.

According to Page Six, the Grudge Match actress revealed her views on the younger generation, saying, "If you look at this generation of selfies and selfies and selfies, it seems a little bit scary. I like to see a driven kid, somebody who wants to come from the ground up... you just don't know what's going to happen to this generation."

“Social media has changed everything. There was more mystery before, but now, people just show their butts all over the place. I’ve never been one to share much of my life. It’s a shame how out of hand this industry has become, and where the value system has gone.”

Basinger has witnessed first-hand how 'dangerous' and 'troubling' social media can be for teenagers like her 18-year-old daughter Ireland.
She told the mag: 'The way [teens] communicate now and not having to go face-to-face. I just think there are quite a few negative things about it. It's just troubling. It's troubling, especially since I do have a teenager — I know what I'm talking about. But we'll see where it goes.'

"There were times I could have chosen [my movies] better. I did this film, The Marrying Man, where I met my eventual [now-ex] husband, Alec Baldwin, but I was teeter-tottering because I had also been offered Sleeping with the Enemy [which eventually starred Julia Roberts]," she says. "Isn’t it funny that I turned down Sleeping with the Enemy and then I went on to sleep with the enemy!"

A: Truly disappointed, but what could we do when God chose to snow the whole nation in the weekend it opened–and it was the same weekend Ace Ventura, Pet Detective opened. We’ve been offered The Getaway 2. The Getaway where? God knows.

LG: Did you get along with Jack Nicholson when you made Batman?

KB: Oh, I loved Nicholson. I’m not a fan of anybody’s but I think he’s done some wonderful performances. He’s not afraid to do anything, so that’s cool with me. But it was hard, it was tough. Jack and all the producers made money. Peters-Guber, they made money. And Warner Bros., of course, made money. But none of the rest of us made anything. We got raped, everybody did. It was a rape deal, it really was.

After two television movies and two features — Hard Country, with Jan-Michael Vincent, and Mother Lode, with Charlton Heston, neither of which was widely distributed — she was hired for the role of Domino in Never Say Never Again. She hated the movie ("It was all about Bond"), and little love was lost between her and the director, Irvin Kershner. In a recent interview, she called him "mean." He retaliated by saying that "she has a problem that a lot of ex-models have, and that's paying too much attention to their looks." The man knew which button to push. "He zinged it to me like you wouldn't believe!" Basinger says. She's laughing, but she's angry, too. "They preface everything with 'ex-model.' I don't even know what the hell that means. 'Cause they could just as easily put 'plumber' in there now, like 'plumber-actress.' Because I'm not a model anymore. It drives me mad."

“I'm a very determined businesswoman... I've got lots of things to do, and I don't have time to be classified as difficult, and I don't have time.”

Wow, talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

How so!?

Kim complains about teenagers being self-absorbed, vain, when she's infamous around all of Hollywood's circles for being exactly like this.
And how about in one breath she says shy and not one to share her life and then complain about today's social media where kids like her teenage daughter don't meet "face-to-face".
One thing positive I will say is that there's no way her daughter will be worse than her mother..because that's simply I M P O S S I B L E.

Who's bitter here? You seem to have gone far out of your way to take The Worst of KB and distill it here. Everything she says is perfectly reasonable, but if you selectively take a lot of interviews and pull the negative parts out, what should we expect? I'm not even a fan of her's, but this smells like a hatchet job. Who is paying you?

reply

And how exactly is all what she has said "perfectly reasonable"!? And how is comparing the money that you made from Batman to "rape" not make up sound remotely bitter!?

reply

Because that's how she "reads" what's going on. I don't know the details of her career, but anyone who doesn't question what is going on is a toadie. They get what they can get and don't want to ruffle feathers. At least she has the stones to say something.

reply

Just because you have the "stones" to question or say something doesn't necessarily mean that you're automatically in the right or it's going to be beneficial for your career. And quite frankly, at this point where has that exactly taken Kim Basinger's career!?

reply

That’s you Alec Baldwin, isn’t it?

You loveable scamp

Her mother died in childbirth so her stepmother came in when Bassy was such and such years old.
